Some of BC's most well known dignitaries and assemblymen are interred here, most notably being Emily Carr with the paintbrush tributes. It's nice and quiet with shaded parts and a beautiful view of the beach and ocean to one side.

Each Sunday the Old Cememteries Society provides tours to enhance our knowledge about the pioneers in Victoria. I have enjoyed the talks on Oak Bay Pioneers, owners of Saloons and bars, 1867 Movers and Shakers, Emily Carr. Well worth the $5.
